Roy cares enough to try to do something about it, but Riza's been through so much with him that it shows with Mustang when she's in trouble.
Definitely... Roy's always been bad at keeping his cool when his comrades are involved, but for Riza it showed especially. I think it might be even more intense than his reaction with Hughes. His intensity towards Envy was intense because Envy had already killed Hughes
. If you get what I mean, Riza hadn't even been harmed to much extent at that scene, so I think his reactions are even stronger when Riza is involved, than if it were Hughes. Even when Barry was joking around with her way back then, remember his reaction?
P.S. Thanks for the compliment
Just to be clear, Roy is still a man. Although I agree that Roy and Riza might not have crossed the line, I won't put that much bet on Roy being that much of a gentleman.
Though I think your idea is more 'realistic', I still think Roy is more gentleman-ly than most. He wouldn't do it if it would cause her further pain, and even if he did, I think he would feel guilty.
I can't wait for tomorrow's episode, we'll get lots of Royai scenes! And animated chapter 101 is coming closer and closer. happy.gif
@Tian Ai: I really like your fanart. Hopefully we'll see something like that in the next chapter.
I'm excited too! I'm really happy about how far Roy and Riza have been developed in the manga. I think it's partly because of the fans' reactions towards the characters as well. In character polls, Roy outranked Al and Riza outranked all of the females (I think), so maybe the author took that into account somehow as well. (Though she did have most of the series planned out from the beginning). ^^
Thanks for the compliment, and although I think the real version would not be so "obvious", one acn still hope.
